Liverpool, England’s ANATHEMA have posted a preview of their upcoming orchestral album, Falling Deeper, online. The release will be available September 5th in Europe. No North American release date has been announced yet.
According to ANATHEMA’s website:
“Falling Deeper continues where Hindsight left off. The album features brand new arrangements of songs and haunting melodies from our earliest days. It’s a mesmerising blend of the orchestral - majestic and at times ethereal - with beautiful vocal arrangements and our unique ‘feedback’ lead guitars, all centred around a grand piano and a huge rhythm section. All the layers work together to convey the haunting internal landscapes ANATHEMA have become renowned for.
“This is an album which we hope will excite old and new ANATHEMA fans equally. A fresh musical and lyrical approach has transformed songs such as ‘Crestfallen,’ ‘Kingdom’ and ‘Sunset Of Age.’ This record reveals how, even from the very start, the band wrote melodies which would always have a universal magic and emotional impact.
“Another highlight of the album, ‘Everwake,’ features the incredible voice of Anneke van Giersbergen and has brought a higher dimension to one of the band’s earliest and simplest acoustic pieces.
“The record has been produced by Daniel Cavanagh and was recorded and mixed by Andrea Wright at the legendary Parr St Studios, Liverpool. The orchestral arrangements are from Dave Stewart who worked so successfully with ANATHEMA on We’re Here Because We’re Here.
